I just finished building my 36" Mattone Cupola and am starting the curing process.
I had a question on preparing the cooking surface. I remember seeing in a PDF instructions on using a whole bag of flour to fill in all the small spaces between the fire bricks and then lighting several fires to bake it in, but I can’t find any reference to that right now and am curious as to how to fill in the small gaps between the fire bricks.
Should I do the slow curing process by lighting a small fire every day and then once finished with that dump a whole bag of flour in there to fill in the spaces between the bricks?
Thanks in advance.
